FYI I have been able to recreate your issue with out too much trouble. Not only are the sensitive to too much dampness in the beginning, they also do not like to be chilled AT ALL. I moved all the ones I started for germ testing to a different area which has been staying between 66 and 68 and with in a week have gotten them to do that same thing with the weird looking leaves.
I saved a couple and moved them in to a warmer area to see if they bounce back or just die off which is what I expect them to do now. Not sure why Murphy put that rule about extreme genetics being extreme to run, or the strongest plants never yielding much.
In any event, wanted to update and let you know Starfighter is still a sensitive little girl that needs love and much tenderness.
